9.00 am – 10.30 am Friday 24 October, 2014 Proposals for a new law requiring the mandatory retention of metadata raise a number of issues including:

 •    Is mandatory retention of metadata a good idea?

 •    If it is – how should metadata be defined?

 •    Who should have access to that data and how should that access be authorised (warrant or authorisation from a superior)?

 •    Who should have oversight of that access (government administrator or independent body)?

 •    What are the consequences for the misuse of metadata?

 •    What are the rights of security agencies?

 •    How should the data be secured?

The draft legislation for the proposals is expected to be released for consultation shortly.

To assist with some background information on the proposals, Jodie Siganto will host an on-line briefing session on Friday 24 October 2014, details below.
